pursuant to Section 154.402 and Part 382 (Subpart B) of the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission's Regulations under the Natural Gas Act
and the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978. The intent and purpose of
this Section is to establish an Annual Charges Adjustment (ACA)

transactions performed by Natural, including all transportation
performed pursuant to X Schedules in Natural's FERC Gas Tariff,
Volume No. 2.

the Commission. The ACA unit charge shall be applied to the
commodity component of rates.
